Aziz Ansari

Comedian Aziz Ansari came up through the New York underground comedy scene before earning his break on MTV’s Human Giant. He’s now starring alongside Amy Poehler on NBC’s Parks and Recreation and can be seen in Get Him to the Greek. Yet somehow he also has time to be a very prolific blogger (see:, writing about events in his life that may not have actually happened. (E.g., a wild night on the town with track-suited playa Paul Krugman.) So, we asked Ansari by email, has he had any other recent celebrity encounters? He replies, “I got into a fight with Tom Colicchio from Top Chef. We had both ended up at the same bar. I was talking to this girl. Colicchio comes over and goes ‘Hey, bro, why don’t you pack your knives and get the fuck out of here?’ I said, ‘Excuse me?’ He goes, ‘Look bro, I’m on Bravo—I do what I want, and I want to talk to this chick.’ I refused, and next thing you know Colicchio throws a handful of coriander in my eyes and slams my head into a bowl of foie gras. I tried to fight back, but Colicchio grabbed my throat and goes, ‘If you don’t go away, I’ll replace your eyeballs with these grilled, bacon-wrapped scallops.’” BEN WESTHOFF
